Compared to some hostels around London this one had not only a really good location but a modern, clean, beautiful building and a really friendly staff! The place was huge and reminded me of the campus I stayed at when I went on a student exchange program because of the amount of young students and staff from all over the... More

The hotel reception was first class, very welcoming, I share a room with 5 other people but the experience was good, the bedding was very clean, the showers and toilet rooms were very clean. Had a very nice stay, apart from the noise of the traffic outside, I had a pleasant nights sleep.

It was my first stay in a hostel, but my friends and I chose a room with an en suite as the the room could sleep the 3 of us just right. The facilities in our bathroom were eco-friendly and showering in the dark was a common (but fun and funny) experience. The lights and water cut off after a... More

Very clean, loved the curtains around the bed it was a nice touch. Nice little lounge downstairs. Location was very convenient staff were friendly. Nicer than many hotels for a fraction of the cost. Bar was cheap but closed early.

My girlfriend and I stayed here 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm and found the hostel to be satisfactory overall. Now, some friends of ours living in London did make fun of us a bit for staying in the Elephant and Castle area as it's considered "a bit dodgy" by the locals. But it was fine. Perhaps if you...

Clean rooms, friendly staff and breakfast is okay for a free one! The lounge is closing a bit early.. Also weird that when you are with two persons, you get two beds but on the other side of the room, ask for 1 double bed when you arrive!! Location is good, busses stop in front of the safestay and the... More
